SNS/SIFR Finance panel: Where is the Russian economy heading: with Sergei Guriev, Newly appointed chief economist for EBRD
The Russian economy has for a long time faced serious structural problems. In addition, the Russian economy has entered a recession with falling oil prices, a weak ruble, double-digit inflation and capital flight.
What can we expect of the Russian economy in the near future? Is there any cause for optimism? In what direction is the Russian government moving?
The Finanspanel is the meeting forum of SNS and the SIFR for the financial sector. This meeting is co-organized with the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES)
